Guest of honor Indonesian Health Minister Budi Gunadi Sadikin will commit to digital maturity for his nation at the HIMSS22 APAC Health Conference & Exhibition in September. The fourth most-populous nation in the world is poised to catalyze digital healthcare, and the nation is looking to compete and make its healthcare be the preferred choice in Asia-Pacific.

The conference will welcome attendees from around the world from 26 to 29 Sept. 2022 at the Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center in Bali, Indonesia. They will address the next frontier — digital healthcare.

The Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia recently created a blueprint to accelerate the digital transformation of healthcare by 2024, and HIMSS22 APAC will be the venue for professionals to network, forge partnerships and create opportunities to transform healthcare in Indonesia and other Asia Pacific nations through data and technology.

Sadikin will meet with HIMSS President & CEO Hal Wolf, deliver an address as the event’s guest of honor and tour the exhibition floor.

“It is our pleasure to welcome the HIMSS22 APAC Conference and Exhibition, as well as healthcare professionals globally, to join us in Bali as we gather to reimagine how better care, data and connectivity can pave the way for stronger and more resilient health ecosystems,” Sadikin said.

HIMSS and Indonesia’s Ministry of Health are working to enhance regulations, technologies, human resources and health infrastructures as part of Indonesia’s digital health transformation.

HIMSS last year entered into a 3-year collaboration agreement with PERSI (Indonesia Hospitals Association) to work on capacity building, workforce development and information technology projects. The partnership will advance the digitization of the Indonesia’s health system. PERSI has more than 2,600 PERSI-member hospitals and 18 hospital associations across Indonesia.

HIMSS22 APAC is co-hosted by PERSI and supported by KITRAS (Indonesia Digital Medical Community).
